Look Who’s Back!

I’m back in the marshes this week, camera in tow, after a busy Derby hat season.

And today I discovered — so are “The Greats”!!

Somehow, all is right with the world once our great egrets return to Cape Cod.

Do they take your breath away, too??  😉

‘Til next time!

New Arrivals

More new Spring Arrivals came in for a landing yesterday, to our foggy Red River marsh.

It never ceases to amaze me how magical the light and colors can be, even on such a dreary day as it was…

Blog coming soon!

Easter Comes to the Cape Cod Scrub Pines

Easter comes in all shapes, sizes and colors.

And here on Cape Cod a new tradition seems to have caught on – Easter Egg Trees!

It’s an old German tradition known as the Ostereierbaum, the decorating of trees with brightly colored Easter eggs.

Be they enamel, wood or the Christmas Tree plastic variety, these eggs seem to be full of a special kind of whimsy and magic.

So why not start a new tradition next year, and decorate a tree with some Easter eggs?

It’ll sure give that tough old pine of yours a facelift like no other, and make every passerby smile to boot!  😉

Happy Easter everybody!  😉

Spring Comes in for a Landing on Ole’ Cape Cod – Finally

Well it looks like spring has finally decided to come to Cape Cod to stay!!

The pansies are overflowing the container gardens now, their little faces smiling with delight as they dance in the soft sea breezes.

The daffies have begun to open wide their blossoms, knowing now for sure that there will be no more silly frosts to worry about.

And one of my favorites, the stunning blue glory-of-the-snow, has popped up almost overnight in the small meadow where I walk.

I wait all winter for their bold blue color and tiny white star centers…

And will you look at THIS!

These three brave crocuses decided that sole old broken piece of lattice fence wasn’t going to stop their celebration of spring’s return, no siree!

Isn’t it amazing…

How determined some things are to survive and grow, no matter what life throws at them?

So Happy Spring everybody!  That’s a sure thing now from this ole’ Cape Cod that gets a little less chilly each and every day!  😉

Evenings at the Mill

Evenings are my favorite time at Mill Landing.

It’s a time to talk over the day with friends.

But mostly… it’s the quiet time.

Time to breathe in the beauty that surrounds you.

Let the cares of the day slip away with the tide and just —

Glide….

‘Night from the Mill!
